    Starry Eyes 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Mar, 2015

    What a wonderfully refreshing horror film this was, something that's pretty hard to find in this day and age of modern horror. As subtly creepy as the first hour was, the last 30 minutes is sheer madness. Alexandra Esso was simply amazing, she became the role...I can't think of being this impressed with a lead female role in a horror film since probably Angela Bettis in May. And what an excellent soundtrack too. This ranks up with Lovely Molly, Absentia…

    The ABCs of Death 2013

    ★★½ Watched 14 Mar, 2015

    My love for anthologies finally got the better of me and I watched THE ABCS OF DEATH. I should have listened to all of you.

How can you not appreciate a film, made in Norway, where a guy just happens to have a bucket of…

    Why the hell I hadn't seen this before is beyond me, but damn was it awesome. Sometimes it's cool to come late to the party, and this was one of those instances. This felt like an anime version of a poliziotteschi mixed with the uber-cool of Melville. Duke Togo is an absolute bad-ass, the story is excellent, and the villains are memorable and bizarre (the snake guy seemed like he'd be more at home in a horror flick, yet it…
